About me

Industry Student
Occupation Gap Year Studying & researching, writing
Location La Sforzesca, Lombardia, Italy
Introduction As a BA Humanities student, I enjoyed weaving through literature, art, history, archaeology, cinema, sociology, ideology & languages. I’m still the same passionate advocate for animal rights and in love with nature; these ‘callings’ pushed me in 2007 to take the journalism MA , hoping to find a key to channel my ideals into live words. Thanks to the help of conversations with people with specific knowledge I have become more stubborn pushing myself still to learn and understand the basics of the mechanics behind the major players leading the global scene, -from the most remote farmer in Afghanistan, to the fishermen and to the executives and CEOs. For the past year I have had to ‘change plans’, as I’m dealing with therapy for Hep C. Aalthough I wasn’t able to pursue a fulltime job immediately after Uni as I planned, I found a space of time, in which I realised I can indulge in learning and catching up with all those more technical and factual aspects I never really got to dig freely in before. Whilst working part-time I have set my self a few goals by the time I finish therapy next year: learning & improving more languages, researching and writing.
Interests Following international affairs; speaking, listening to and observing people; reading fiction and non-fiction novels; writing my thoughts and stories; spending time in nature; playing piano & listening to all music; drifting through art & design exhibitions and trying to understand what makes people ‘click’.
